SRS Energy to Debut Sole Power Tile(TM) at 2009 American Institute of Architects Conference

Solar-Powered Roofing Tile to be Exhibited in Partnership with US Tile

PHILADELPHIA,PA, April 2009: SRS Energy, a leading developer of sustainable solar roofing systems, will launch the Sole Power Tile™, the first building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing product designed for curved roofing systems, at the American Institute of Architects 2009 National Convention and Design Exposition. The convention takes place April 30, 2009 through May 2, 2009 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. SRS Energy will exhibit Sole Power Tile™ in partnership with US Tile, the largest manufacturer of clay tile in the United States and recently acknowledged for their Cradle to Cradle certification.

“Sustainability and green living is high on the consumer agenda for 2009, with so many homeowners looking to save money and also be eco-conscious,” said Marty Low, CEO of SRS Energy. “SRS Energy is excited to introduce Sole Power Tile™ to the architectural world. With green building playing such a significant role in the Obama administration’s economic stimulus efforts, it could not come at a better time.”

SRS Energy’s Sole Power Tile™ system blends seamlessly with several styles of US Tile’s clay tiles, providing energy without unsightly solar panels, thus preserving a roofline’s aesthetics. The partnership between US Tile and SRS Energy makes going solar easy by integrating the clay tile roof purchase with a BIPV system, enabling businesses or homeowners to go green and generate savings.

The Sole Power Tile™ system employs cutting-edge thin film solar technology, valued for generating more energy than comparable products in the harsh roofing environment, and is backed by a full product warranty that ensures reliability for both design professionals and their clients.

“Most attractive of all is the ‘eco-nomics’ associated with Sole Power Tile,” Low said. “Choosing to upgrade to a sustainable roof from SRS Energy puts energy savings in homeowners’ pockets immediately and delivers compelling long-term returns.”

SRS Energy and US Tile will exhibit Sole Power Tile™ at Booth 216 near the front of the South Hall. US Tile is currently launching the product in select West Coast markets. For more information, visit or
